Torres was once a winner of 17 straight bouts and the virtually invincible World Extreme Cagefighting 135-pound champion. Consecutive win No. 18 and the fourth defense of his title were givens at WEC 42 in August against the undefeated yet largely unknown Brian Bowles. Little was expected out of Bowles, The HardCore Gym product, a heavy underdog armed with a weapon that wasn't so much a secret. Torres knew about Bowles' cannon of a right hand and said all he had to do was avoid it.

Torres exploded late into the first round with a combination of punches until Bowles broke out the weapon , caught Torres and sent him to the canvas. It was the first of 13 unanswered blows that concluded the WEC's biggest upset since Mike Brown stunned Urijah Faber to win the featherweight crown.
